day 1688 – cupcake surprise 

cupcake and bubble tea for a surprise pre-birthday celebration. a simple way to show appreciation for a long time teammate, and a friend above all. this team has stuck together for so many years, even i forget how many seasons we have been throwing and dodging together. there’s something special about this team that’s not letting me walk away from vdl entirely. in any case, this could be a reunion tour for some of us so cherish it while we can

day 957 – training and training

a day of nonstop training is what monday is all about. as competition closes in, must work harder and kick into another gear until training becomes life. meanwhile, my routine gym and dodgeball never stops, totalling four hours of evening physical exertion. thought i would pass out immediately after all activities, but turns out i never slept. instead, i had some quality time that made staying up worthwhile. there’s always a first for everything and sometimes life throws curveballs when you least expect it, but it was a good ending to a crazy night; definitely the best pi day yet

happy saturday pi day because it’s only once we get 3.14.15. you have no idea how hard it is to find a store that carries this nowadays, so it makes these minty tubes ever so precious. found these sitting on the shelf and had to stock up on my friend ben after using the last of it the previous weekend. my training will go into full force very soon so i sure need these available and within my arms length at all times

day 226 – long wait

absolute worst thing about going down to the states is the border wait was so unpleasantly long and time consuming. times you want to slam the wheel when eight cars cross in the other lane while your lane hasn’t moved a single car, that’s when you know you picked the wrong lane
